OAKLAND — California Attorney General Rob Bonta today issued the following statement in response to the decision by the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California to dismiss with prejudice Huntington Beach's lawsuit, which sought to exempt the city from state housing laws:
"We filed a motion to dismiss Huntington Beach's federal lawsuit because we believed it was meritless. We are pleased that the court agreed," said Attorney General Bonta. "With this behind us, we look forward to prosecuting our state case against Huntington Beach. Everyone must do their part to address California's housing crisis."
